083013 Simon and Garfunkel Tribute Opens 78th Season for Friends of Music (223)

WOLFEBORO — Wolfeboro Friends of Music launches its 78th season with "Feelin' Groovy," a multi-media tribute to Simon and Garfunkel presented by Jim Witter and his band on Saturday, September 7, at 7:30 p.m. at Kingswood Arts Center.

Award winning Canadian singer/songwriter Witter wowed the Wolfeboro Friends of Music audience in October, 2012 with his multi-media smash hit "Piano Men." The concert is sponsored by Paul and Debbie Zimmerman.

Rear screen projection on-stage is an integral part of the Witter experience: sights and sounds of the 1960's are woven in with the present, moving hit-by-hit through such chart classics as "Wake Up Little Susie", "Homeward Bound," "Mrs. Robinson," and "The Sound of Silence". The band's clean, fluid back-up resonates in the spacious Kingswood Arts Center as Witter's versatile voice, a warm baritone with amazing range and personal interpretation, pays homage to the program namesakes.

A pre-concert dinner will be hosted by Lakes Region Newcomers Club. For full details pertaining to the dinner visit the Newcomers website at www.lrnc-nh.com.

This is the first of eight programs presented by Wolfeboro Friends of Music to people of the greater Lakes Region during its season, which runs from September through May. Tickets are available for $25 at the door; at Black's Paper Store, and Avery Insurance in Wolfeboro; or at Innisfree Bookshop in Meredith; by calling (603) 569-2151; or by visiting the website: www.wfriendsofmusic.org.

082513 Laconia Adult Education offering Algebra Course (224)

LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education is offering an Algebra II/Accuplacer/Assistments class beginning on Monday, August 26. The class will meet for (15) fifteen weeks from 6–9 p.m.

This class is designed to help students improve their math skills and scores so that when they go on to post-secondary educational opportunities, they will be able to enroll in regular courses leading to their degree as opposed to having to spend time in remedial math classes.

The Accuplacer that is given on a college level is a battery of computerized tests that determines a students' knowledge in math, reading and writing as they prepare to enroll in college level courses. The results of this assessment, in conjunction with the students' academic background, goals and interests, are used by the college academic coordinators and counselors to place students into college level courses that meet their needs. The Accuplacer also helps colleges to determine the students' strengths and weaknesses and to provide them with early academic help if necessary.

For more information or to register for classes contact the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712.
